Pistachio Fudge

Pistachio Fudge topped with Dark chocolate Ganache
Oh sweet pistachio fudge. I made two batches of this fudge. The first batch was delicious, but didn’t have quite enough pistachio flavor for me. So I made a second batch. All in the name of providing all of you a top notch recipe.
You’re welcome. This is one flavorful fudge. My husband who doesn’t like pistachios even enjoyed this fudge. Go figure!

I had to send this one out of the house immediately though, as having eaten the first batch alone (or most of it anyways), I couldn’t be trusted with a second pan of this fudge!
Don’t be scared either, no candy thermometer involved in this recipe! Check out my guide on how to make fudge for plenty of tricks for making this fudge.

  1. I’m always instantly attracted to white (or green!) fudge, and the chocolate glaze on top of this one just makes it better. I’ve never seen a recipe that uses pistachio pudding, I’ll have to go track some down, although I don’t know that I’ve ever seen it. Thanks!

  19. Aimee! I just found this recipe via pinterest. I am so delighted that it is yours b/c then it MUST be a winning fudge recipe – i have yet to make fudge using fluff as part of the base. I love pistachio desserts, so so so much!! Love this recipe girl! πŸ™‚

  20. Oooo, this would be dangerous around me too πŸ™‚ Love how packed with pistachios this fudge is!

    I am a cooking teacher and did the pistachio fudge with my students for a candy display we were doing to promote our department. They didn’t think they would like it when I said the word “pistachio” but they loved it! They were fighting over the last piece. We also did the cookies and cream fudge and strawberry swirl. They said the strawberry swirl tasted like ice cream. Thank you for your ideas, the kids loved it and everyone thought it looked beautiful!

    What a disappointment! Two different batches with expensive Lindt chocolate and both separated into a disgusting mess. What went wrong?
